Vagrants scare away library patrons MELISSA LE ROUX
VAGRANTS loitering outside Grassy Park Library have been harassing and intimidating patrons, even going as far as threatening them into handing over money. The situation is so bad that people are afraid to return to the library. Eric Klynhout, a volunteer at the library, says they have received many complaints from patrons: “The vagrants are out of control. Just the other day a woman was leaving the library and when she got to the parking lot, one of them jumped into the car with her and said she is not leaving until she pays him for looking after her car. She had to get out and make change at one of the nearby shops.”. He said that the young men fight with each other, scaring young library users who come to the library after school. “They interfere with the females too. One woman was so scared that she has joined another library.” A group of about 25 vagrants – all under the age of 25 – have set up “home” on the lawn outside the library for the past two years. Mughammad Dollie, chairperson of the Friends of the Library, says the vagrants interfere with and intimidate library patrons who park in the area opposite the library. Dollie said they also mess up the property surrounding the library and use the premises “as if it were their homes”. “They come from all over – Seawinds, Vrygrond, Gugulethu – and they all have their own problems.” Jade Sampson (17), the youngest vagrant at the library, says he has been living on the streets for seven years. He tells People’s Post
that he was first (at the library) with his brother but now he is all alone. Sampson says he watches the cars in the parking lot and sleeps at the library. “I left home because there were problems at home and I didn’t want to stay. My mommy comes around sometimes but I don’t want to be with them,” he says. The teenager attended Sid G Rule and Athlone North primary schools and completed Grade 5. Dollie says that there are no shelters in the area for them to go to, and if there were, they were not places that would provide rehabilitation. The area was cleared of vagrants about six weeks ago, when Law Enforcement came to remove them. They were sent away to live elsewhere. However, since then, they have been slowly returning. Law Enforcement Services’ Displaced People’s Unit (DPU) works closely with Social Development to find shelter or relocate those who wish to live with their family and friends, or who want to return home, says Shaun Smith, Assistant Chief of Law Enforcement Services. He adds that the City of Cape Town has a Street People Policy and that the DPU have, on many occasions, relocated street people, but there are those who do not want any type of intervention. According to Dollie, Friends of the Library reported the youths three times to the Grassy Park Police Station – which is right opposite the library. However, nothing was done, says Dollie. However, the spokesperson for the station, Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith, says they have done some work with the vagrants. “We’ve taken their fingerprints and took pho-

tos of them. There was also an operation done where a few of them were arrested,” she says. Dollie recalls an incident in November last year when The Friends were having a meeting in the library and were distracted by dagga fumes coming into the building. “The incident was reported to the police but no-one came out to investigate it,” he says. The public ablution facilities at the taxi rank across the road from the library are always locked, and the vagrants resort to urinating against the wall or wherever else they can. The security guard, Kennedy Kabaga – an employee of Unlimited Security Service – has been securing the perimeter of the library for four years. He says that the vagrants sleep on the library grounds at night, and he has to wake them in the morning. “They cause trouble at the parking lot, they fight and the people are always complaining about them.” Kabaga, Klynhout and Dollie say that the council should put up a fence around the li-

brary’s entire perimeter to prevent anyone from sleeping on the grounds. Councillor Brett Herron, Mayoral Committee member for Community Services, says that most libraries in the City will be fenced off due to vagrants vandalising the premises, including Grassy Park Library. “Most library buildings are exposed to vandalism by vagrants if there is no fencing around the buildings. This is why we will soon put up a fence around Grassy Park Library. “More libraries will be fenced in future due to vagrants vandalising the exterior of the buildings, making a mess of the surroundings with the material they use to build shelters and relieving themselves in public,” says Herron. He added that a bigger concern is vagrants making fires against the buildings, as is the case at Grassy Park Library. “Library staff are not trained or equipped to deal with this and can report it to the different supporting structures such as Metro Police and Social Development,” he says.

Things can be much worse than fracking TONY ROBINSON
MOST of the people who are raging against the idea of exploring for shale gas in the Karoo know very little about the technology and what Sasol has called its “game changing” potential. In fact, most of the knowledge in circulation has come from those strongly opposed to “fracking”. Public relations companies have even been retained to blacken the picture and whip up emotions to a point approaching hysteria. They have plenty of material to work with. In the early days of fracking there were disasters, most of them the result of wild cat operations. But the technology has improved and in responsible hands it might even be acceptable in some circumstances. So it is easy to understand the fears in circulation. I grew up in the Karoo and I know that water gives land its value. Take away the water or contaminate it and one is left with worthless desert. In a drought, a good borehole is the only thing that stands between a farmer and financial ruin. It is an emotional relationship. You can m ess with his wife but don’t touch his borehole. The water of agricultural importance lies at depths of no more than a few hundred metres. Fracking, however, takes place something like 10 kilometres below the surface! That is five time deeper than our deepest gold mine. The temperature down there will be about 300°C and any water would become instant
steam. If the hole is lined with steel there should be no contamination of agricultural water. But one can understand the fear. The biggest problems will be logistical ones. The equipment is massive and new roads will be required. What does one do with 10 kilometres of earth from borehole cores? The impact on the Karoo will be considerable. And where will the water needed for fracking come from? On the other hand, holes 10 kilometres deep will give us access to an inexhaustible supply of geothermal heat. And that can be turned into electricity. The US Department of Energy says geothermal electricity is cheaper than coal or nuclear power and the price does not go up every year along with the cost of fuel and labour. Even if there is no gas we could win. So here’s the question: would you rather have Shell fracking in the Karoo or Eskom trying to run half a dozen atomic power stations? Nuclear power requires consistent good management for at least 50 years. There is no place for CEOs who trim the maintenance budgets to improve the bottom line and their bonuses. And there is no place for cadre deployment. Imagine a future Minister of Minerals, Energy and Nationalisation – someone like Julius Malema – having a hand in the appointment of nuclear mangers. His matric woodwork studies would be of little help. We may be able to survive an implosion in the Land Bank or a foul-up in the Karoo, but mismanagement of a Koeberg could be goodbye Cape Town.

PEOPLE WHO CARE: The St John primary health care or ganisation in Fish Hoek re cently received R321 775 from the National Lot tery Distribution Trust Fund to train 75 students from the South Peninsula in homebased care with first aid. This threeweek, accredited course was available to South African citizens living in informal settlements and previously disadvantaged communities in Masiphumele, Red Hill, Lavender Hill, Re treat, Capricorn Park, Ocean View, Muizenberg and Fish Hoek. Training started in Octo ber 2010 and is to be completed by the middle of May. Heather Baker, centre manager of St John Fish Hoek, says that this is the third time in eight years that the centre has received funding from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund. She says the sponsorship has enabled St John to empower many people over the years.
Job opportunities available during the elections MELISSA LE ROUX
WITH the municipal elections around the corner, the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) has created 15 630 temporary voluntary employment opportunities for community members. This is in addition to other IEC positions, such as assistant project coordinators and area managers. The 15 630 temporary staff will man voting stations. The IEC is a publicly-funded, permanent body that was established in terms of the Electoral Commission Act of 1996. Its purpose is to promote and safeguard democracy in South Africa. Provincial Electoral Officer, Reverend Courtney Sampson, says the IEC’s task is to put all structures and systems in place for a “free and fair election without showing prejudice or favour to any of the participating political parties”. The IEC’s job structure consists of permanent jobs as well as “expansion job structures” – temporary employment for people in the community during the election period. As each electoral project coordinator has an assistant, there are 40 posts for the assistant project coordinator position. There are also 387 posts for the area manager position. These positions are advertised in various publications as applicants would need to have a tertiary qualification. The posts are terminated one month after the election is over. Sampson said: “There are 1 570 voting
stations, and during the registration process, three staff members are at each voting station and 10 are present on election day.” However, there are currently no more positions available at the IEC, as they have all been filled. According to Sampson, the IEC does not offer jobs. “The 15 630 positions that are available at the time of elections are voluntary positions, and they get compensated for the time spent working in aid of the elections,” he said. The IEC advertised the available positions and anyone interested could apply at the local offices in Athlone, Mitchell’s Plain, Strand, Constantia and Bellville. Training is provided by the IEC and began on Friday 1 April. It covered the operations involved during elections. Staff are taught to handle difficult situations, what their duties are and the legal aspects of the legislation. According to Sampson, political party officials or campaigners may not apply for a job at the IEC during election time. “Having someone who campaigns for a particular political party volunteering at a voting station on election day will put the IEC in a bad light, as they could try to persuade people to vote for that party. “There is a declaration that the volunteers at the voting station have to sign, saying that they are being truthful,” he says. Any of the volunteers found guilty of campaigning for a political party at any time during the election period, will be removed from their post and replaced.

Rental cop programme enforces order in wards the officials could be extended, as the problems in certain areas of the ward occurred way before duties commenced and after the close of the working day shift,” he says. The reasons for requesting extended hours included problems such as: . Delivery trucks travelling through residential streets in the ward. . Vehicles parked outside businesses operating from residential homes, obstructing the view, blocking pavements and posing a danger to other motorists driving by. . The ongoing taxi-related problems such as oil leaks from vehicles damaging the roads and route permit checks. . Persistent social problems at Langevlei and fishmongers disposing the entrails into the vlei – contributing to the pollution of the vlei. . Businesses operating from home, discharging waste water and oil into the stormwater drains and the eventual pollution into the water bodies in the ward. According to Burger, the people in the ward know exactly what times the Law Enforcement official is on duty, and when to start with their “nonsense”. “The hours aren’t working. If you need them before 08:00 or after 16:00, you would have to call City Police. “I trust the official to do the work. Nobody knows when they are in the ward, but when I take a look at the statistics, I can see that they have been working,” he said. Burger adds that there has been a reduction in crime in the wards . “When the officer is on duty, the area is more stable,” he says. The successes of the project in Ward 72 include vagrants drinking in public and sleeping in parks, as well as fishmongers dumping entrails at Langevlei.

HE Rent-A-Cop pilot project, in terms of which two Law Enforcement officers are hired to patrol Retreat and Grassy Park during the day, will be more effective if the working hours are extended. That’s according to Ward Councillor Jan Burger, who adds that the ideal would be to employ police officers around-the-clock, as would-be criminals are aware of the officers’ hours of duty and plan their activities around that. However, Burger says this is not feasible as the subcouncil budget does not extend to cover this. “The possibility of having an officer of the law take care of the ward all the time is there. However, the money to make it happen is not there,” he says. The project was launched in July last year and will run until June. The officers are hired by Rondevlei Subcouncil to patrol Grassy Park and Retreat. Wards 72 and 65 were chosen for the pilot. The Law Enforcement officers patrol from 08:00 and 16:00. Their job is to assist with specific problems encountered in the two wards, such as illegal dumping, drugs and alcohol being sold illegally on residential properties and general crime. At the Rondevlei Subcouncil meeting in March, Burger expressed his concerns with the working hours of the Law Enforcement officials. He requested that the hours be extended or that there be the option of shift changes. “We asked whether the working hours of

Ward Councillor Derek Smith says the programme is working “very well” in his ward. “Nothing is too small for Inspector Gavin Greeve and he leaves no stone unturned,” said Smith. The officer was hired to deal with issues such as illegal dumping, drug houses, shebeens and general municipal complaints. Smith says the officer keeps a close eye on the criminal activity in the area, especially on drug houses and shebeens, and as a result, many have shut down. “It’s good to have a dedicated officer working in our ward; it is definitely money well spent.

‘Massive’arrears protest action planned TAMMY PETERSEN
HOUSANDS of people are expected to take part in a massive protest which will see residents from 12 suburbs march to the Cape Town Civic Centre under one banner on Tuesday 26 April to demand the scrapping of all municipal arrears for people living in the city’s impoverished areas. The decision to protest was made by Communities for Social Change (CSC), a coordinating structure of civic organisations representing Hanover Park, Athlone, Manenberg, Mitchell’s Plain, Hout Bay, Heideveld, Lavender Hill, Lotus River, Ottery, Grassy

Park, Elsies River and Leonsdale. The decision comes after meetings held with City of Cape Town officials failed to resolve issues concerning the poor, says Mario Wanza, the organiser of the CSC. Representatives from the CSC met Mayor Dan Plato and City officials yesterday to discuss their demands. These include the halting of evictions due to illegal occupations, debt and anti-social behaviour, a call for the scrapping of municipal arrears and the handing over of council-owned units to people who have been paying rent for years. “What upset us is that there was no investigation into the validity of our requests and no committee set up to review our demands. “The City just flat-out refused what we were asking for, and we will respond by doing what’s best for the people and protesting. Ons gaan Kaap toe.” The action comes two months after 3 000 residents from Manenberg took to the streets armed with posters asking the City to lower their rent and write off their rental backlog. Wanza says people have been paying rent for over 30 years and they should be given ownership of the council properties. Also under the banner of the CSC, more than 500 Hanover Park residents took to the streets last month and delivered a memorandum to the local rent office demanding that their arrears be scrapped.
One of the area coordinators for CSC, Errol Davids, says people are becoming involved in the “movement” because they are desperate and “over their heads in debt”. Davids, who is the deputy chairperson of the Hanover Park Civic Association, says the organisation is in “total support” of the planned protest, adding that they will start distributing pamphlets within the week. Two weeks ago, Mitchell’s Plain residents expressed their concerns about the scrapping of water arrears when they burnt a cardboard coffin containing hundreds of warning letters issued by the City. The coffin was loaded onto a hearse and taken from Mitchell’s Plain Town Centre to the Beacon Valley Rent Office where it was burnt in front of cheering protestors. The CSC’s Mitchell’s Plain coordinator, Sulyman Stellenboom, says another march will take place in Mitchell’s Plain on 21 April when they will return to the subcouncil office and request feedback on their demand for the removal of water management devices behind the incorrect readings being taken from water meters, leading to high bills. “This City has no respect for the poor and is not taking this matter seriously. We are representing the people and although we try to engage with the officials towards finding a solution, they are not coming to the party.” Plato, who was handed a copy of the pam-
Ottery biker nabbed with tik A 29-YEAR-OLD biker was arrested for being in possession of 60 g of tik on Monday 4 April in Ottery at about 10:00. Constable Tyrone Crouster, of Grassy Park Police Station, was on duty doing a “stop and search” in Corn Road, when he saw two “suspicious-looking characters” on a yellow Vuka motorbike. After stopping the vehicle, the two men were searched and on the one, six large packets of tik – with an estimated value of R13 000 – and R200 were found. The suspect appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday 5 April. . Grassy Park police are warning residents about a new method that criminals have been using to break into cars in the area. Thieves have been removing the back and front windscreens of the cars to gain access. According to the spokesperson of the Grassy Park Police Station, Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith, this method allegedly does not trip the alarm system of the car, helping thieves make a clean get-away. “We would like to warn residents to please not park their vehicle outside in the road because they provide an opportunity to criminals, to break into their vehicles. They must
also be alert for strange characters in their neighbourhood. “We would also like to urge residents to mark their wheelie bins, because it’s a great concern to SAPS that a lot of cases reported are stolen wheelie bins,” she says. . Grassy Park police is appealing to the community to help them in locating Justin Williams, who resided in Ottery. Williams was last seen by his family on Thursday 24 March. He is driving a red Opel Kadette, registration number CA 621 191. If you know of his whereabouts you can contact Constable Lungiselelo Taho on 079 958 7587. .

Photo: Melissa Papier phlet which the CSC has been distributing to invite people to take part, declined to comment on the planned protest, saying only that “it’s their right to march”. However, he says the action seems to be “politically motivated” and that the CSC is making “one demand after the other”. “They are making accusations and allegations without listening to our explanations. They claim there is a lack of service delivery to the poor, but they cannot give us the proof to back this claim. They need to be more organised and give me a list of complaints so that I can follow up on it.” He adds that a follow-up meeting is being planned, although a date is yet to be set.
Playing among the stars SOUTH AFRICAN jazz stars will gather at the Artscape Theatre Centre on Friday 15 April in support of the Alexander Sinton High School jazz band’s pending trip to the Tutti World Youth Music Festival in China. This arts focus school will be sending its music pupils to an international gathering for the first time. The youngsters will perform only South African music. Their journey to Beijing in July is historical, says The Alexander music director Ronel Nagfaal. “We are proud and eager to represent Athlone and South Africa at this global assembly, where youth musicians will present musical traditions from their countries. “This contact and exchange is a unique cultural experience, a tremendous opportunity for the musical and personal growth of our youth, and their grooming as leaders in music and in their communities.” The other Cape Town schools sending bands to the eight-day festival are Heathfield, Bergvliet and Wynberg Girls’ High.

Infrastructure upgrades prioritised HOUSING opportunities, industrial growth, infrastructure development and conservation could be on the cards as the City of Cape Town plans to prioritise infrastructure upgrades on the Cape Flats in order to fully utilise available development land. “Over the years, the Cape Flats district has matured into a prime area with close proximity to vast economic potential in Cape Town,” says Alderman Brian Watkyns, chairperson of the City’s Planning and Environment Portfolio Committee (PEPCO). The district is bounded by the M5 in the west, the N2 in the north, Lansdowne Road and Vanguard Drive in the east, and the False Bay coastline to the south. It includes suburbs such as Athlone, Lansdowne, Gugulethu, Nyanga, Ottery, the Philippi Horticultural Area, Grassy Park, Lavender Hill, Strandfontein and Rondebosch East. Watkyns says a stronger focus could be placed on land next to the main transport corridors of Lansdowne, Klipfontein and Spine Roads, as well as Strandfontein Road and Jan Smuts Drive. “The plan consists of an integrated environmental management framework
and spatial development plan. These provide guidelines for the development of housing opportunities, industrial growth, infrastructure development and conservation,” says Watkyns. “The Cape Flats District Plan looks at encouraging initiatives such as the upgrading of transport infrastructure, housing development, the upgrading of informal settlements, and the improvement of public facilities. “This district has valuable assets such as the False Bay Ecology Park, the Philippi Horticultural Area and the False Bay coastline that must be safeguarded and enhanced,” he says. Copies of the final draft of the Cape Flats District Plan are now available at all City libraries, subcouncil offices, district planning offices, as well as at www.capetown.gov.sa/en/sdf. The City is scheduling open days when the revised draft district plans will be discussed. The next open day is scheduled for Tuesday 19 April at the Retreat Civic Centre from 16:30 until 19:00.

WORKING as an undertaker for nearly five decades, has given Grassy Park resident, Neil Jacobus (60), the passion and the zest to understand the needs of those in his community. Jacobus retired on 28 February, just three days after his 60th birthday, and has remained involved in the community. He started out at the tender age of 15 at a company called Doves in Observatory – known then as Goodall and William and later as Wasserfall and Hardick. By the time he retired, he was one of the oldest undertakers to be working in the Western Cape. “At first working at the funeral parlour wasn’t pleasant. I wasn’t used to it at all and even though it wasn’t scary, I was just not comfortable. But as the years went by, I got used to it.” For 45 years Jacobus worked in many different areas in the funeral home, and eventually learned his way around every nook and cranny. He did jobs such as coffin manufacturing, deep sea funerals – where a GOLDEN YEARS: Neil Jacobus received a certificate neatly-wrapped body is tossed into of appreciation from Doves funeral parlour after he re the ocean – taking human remains tired in February.

City seeks Plan B for stadium VERNA VAN DIEMEN
T LEAST two residents’ associations around the Cape Town Stadium say they will support a review of some of the restrictions preventing commercial activity in the area when there are no events at the venue. The stadium is built on grounds declared public open space, which restricts any commercialisation. The conditions are stipulated in the Record of Decision (ROD) issued in 2006 by then MEC for Environmental Affairs, Tasneem Essop. It is projected that ratepayers will have to cough up R44,6 million of the R56 million operating costs needed to run the stadium this year. But members of the Sea Point, Fresnaye and Bantry Bay Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association (SFBRRA) and the Green Point Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association (GPRRA) say they would support any efforts by the City to unlock the stadium’s economic possibilities, including lifting some of the restrictions. Brett Herron, the Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services, says he welcomes the positive feedback from the two associations. “The site has always been controversial, but we were hoping for the support of the community,” he says. David Lazarus, of SFBRRA says: “Making the stadium financially viable must come first. The ratepayers are paying for it at the moment. We are not saying do a blanket lift of restric-
tions but look at each restriction on its merit.” Jocelin Kagan from GPRRA says: “The short-sightedness of those who were responsible for drafting this document (ROD) costs the City and ratepayers an extraordinary amount of money every month to keep the stadium going. “The City has the power to reformulate the ROD and as such, could speed its income-generating capabilities if they would move to focus on this document and process.” The Mouille Point Ratepayers’ Association (MPRPA), however, did not want to voice its support or disapproval for the zoning restrictions, opting instead to raise its concerns about the impact stadium events have on residents. Marco van Embden, the MPRPA chairperson, says: “The workings of the City and its endeavours to run the stadium at a break-even are not part of our discussions with them at this stage. “Our concerns are limited to the impact the various events would have on our owners and residents who live in Mouille Point, between Three Anchor Bay and The Water Club. “The shortage of parking in and around Mouille Point is an issue, especially now that the magnificent Urban Park is fully operational.
It is impossible to run the stadium on just the revenue from concerts and events

District Six ‘will never be the same’ VERNA VAN DIEMEN
VEN though billions will be spent on redeveloping District Six, it will still look vastly different and never recapture the spirit of the bustling, vibrant community it once was. Recreating the now-barren area would be virtually impossible, says Anwah Nagia, chairperson of the District Six Beneficiary and Development Trust. “If we built District Six exactly as it was then, we would have to squeeze everyone into 1 600 homes. Back then whole families lived in one room. We cannot recreate it.” Nagia also said that the homes back then were too “Eurocentric”, and that people were now receiving spacious, modern and better homes. Surrounded by open fields, District Six today looks like a desolate land, secluded from the rest of Cape Town. It was more than a month ago that President Jacob Zuma hosted a symbolic key handover to 44 returning families at the Second Homecoming Celebration held at the Moravian Church on Friday 11 February. The families have not moved into their houses yet. At the event, Zuma guaranteed that development in the area would be completed in the next three years. “The time is 36 months. Everything will be done and nobody can change that,” he said to huge applause. But the City of Cape Town’s manager for Land Restitution Pogiso Molapo, said 36 months may have been “an ambitious aim”. “We’re looking at five years for the
MEMORIES: Annie Bam revisits her memories while looking through her photo album. Photo: Verna van Diemen project to be done,” said Molapo. The Regional Land Claims Commission, the City of Cape Town, the Western Cape Provincial Government and the District Six Trust have pledged to build 4 500 homes supported by medium-rise commercial developments. In 2003, the pilot phase was rolled out, in which 24 homes were built for residents over 80 years old.
In 2004, exactly 38 years after the area was rezoned by the government, former president Nelson Mandela handed the keys to the first returning residents. Only 68 houses have been built since then. In 1966, the government declared District Six a Whites-Only area under apartheid’s Group Areas Act,
with removals starting in 1968. By 1982, more than 60 000 people were relocated to the Cape Flats townships. The old houses were bulldozed. The only buildings left standing were places of worship. With the fall of apartheid in 1994, the South African government pledged to support rebuilding. Annie Bam (87) returned to District Six five years ago. She was one of the first residents to move into a three-bedroom maisonette, much bigger than the one-bedroom she, her mother, grandmother and sister grew up in. She moved to Manenberg with five of her seven children after the forced removals and later moved to Rocklands in Mitchell’s Plain. The great-great grandmother said that although the area is not the same, she feels safe and has a sense of community. “It will never be the same but I can still ask my one neighbour, Auntie Moena, for something I need, and I belong to a seniors’ club in District Six,” she said. But she said this once-bustling area is very different. “It doesn’t feel like the same District Six as when I was a child. It was a place where we all lived together. “It is so quiet now. Back then Muslims, Christians, black Africans, whites, Jewish people lived together. The Muslim children went to Sunday School and the Christian children went to Mosque. We used to play at the end of Table Mountain. The neighbours had their quarrels but we were like family,” she said. Laughing, Bam recalls an incident where she almost got into a fight with her neighbour after her dog stole their chicken. “I was standing in front of our door when she came past and I heard her say: ‘Dikgevreet van die hoender, nou staan jy hier! Kyk hoe lê die vere,’” said Bam. The next day, said Bam, the woman sent her a plate of baked fish as a peace offering. Like the rest of District Six back then, more than one family lived in their Wicht Street home. Her father was a white man who joined the coloured army, said Bam. Her white family lived with them in the home. The realities of apartheid real-
ly hit Bam when her white cousin acted as if she did not know her when they bumped into each other at a tobacco factory in Kloof Street . “I said: ‘Hello, it’s Annie.’ But she looked down to scratch in her bag. I was so hurt. “When I got home, I told my mom that I would never look at her again,” she said. But despite the pain, Bam said she still thinks about her family. “Sometimes I long for them because we grew up in one home,” she said. She recalls the day that she returned to her home suburb. “It was drizzling that day. We had no key and we were standing outside the house with our furniture. “I was so excited because I was living in town again,” she said. Bam needed to raise a bond of R60 000, which her daughter pays. The 44 unoccupied houses form part of the 114 units planned for the phase two pilot project. Most of the 44 claimants had to raise bonds of about R250 000 for the homes, reportedly valued at R1 million, says Nagia. “The balance of the 4 500 homes will be built in one go within three to five years. Those homes may be free of charge because we are able to cross-subsidise them with the planned commercial developments. “The homes will be exactly the same as all the others, but it may be free because their shortfall will be cross-subsidised with the money made from selling or letting part of the land to private business,” said Molapo. The previous phases were not cross-subsidised. The commercial leg of the project will consist of big and small shops, offices and rental flats. Molapo said: “They had an option to wait for the last phase and may move back free of charge.” When People’s Post visited the site two weeks ago, builders were still hard at work and the homes were unoccupied. Molapo said engineers had still not issued Certificates of Occupancy to certify that the homes were safe because construction was still taking place on the site, therefore making it dangerous. The 44 families will move in soon when the City has issued Certificates of Occupancy, he said.

Blind shackdweller braces for winter storms REYANA STEYN
EVIN Worship is not the type of person to feel sorry for himself, but the prospect of another bleak and wet winter all by himself is not particularly appealing. Worship (46) has been blind since the age of 12, and lives in a cramped, derelict corrugated iron shack in his mother’s home in Tarentaal Road, Bridgetown. His plight was brought to the attention of People’s Post by a community worker Charmaine Less, and we interviewed him in his tiny, stuffy shack, which reeked of mould and dust. During the interview, Worship was forced to bend his tall frame in the low shack, which appears as if it will cave in at any time (a pole props it up) as he walked across the cold cement floor, which is full of holes, using his cane The uneven floor on which Kevin Worship has to walk to guide him. every day.

Choirs battle it out Things can be much worse for the Silver Fez TONY ROBINSON
COME this weekend, eight top Malay choir groups will be battling it out for the 2011 Silver Fez competition. The 72nd Silver Fez Grand Finale kicks off at the Athlone Stadium on Saturday 16 April. The 29 teams belonging to the Cape Malay Choir Board will compete for the overall trophy, the best dressed choir, the grand march-past, exhibition march, mini float and highest points award. Some of the teams participating include the Young Men and Shoprite Jonge Studente from Mitchell’s Plain, Ottomans from Sherwood Park, Young Zinnias from Bridgetown, Sterlitzia from Kensington and Modern Boys from Ottery. Board president, Shafiek April, was both proud and excited, saying: “This is really going to be something spectacular for the public to see.”
The Silver Fez trophy was donated by Die Burger in 1940, which saw the Young Lions from Manenberg being honoured with the first win. Thereafter, the Boarding Boys dominated proceedings, walking away as 11-time winners of the Silver Fez. “This is the most sought-after trophy in the Malay choirs and the teams will be going full steam ahead in their mission to be crowned champions,” says April. The event kicks off at 15:00, with the gates opening at 13:30. Adults pay R30, children R15 and tickets for the reserved area costs R40. There will also be CDs, DVDs, top eight Nederlandsliedere collections and Nederlands books on sale. “The public should know there will be strict security not allowing liquor or firearms inside the stadium,” he says.

MOST of the people who are raging against the idea of exploring for shale gas in the Karoo know very little about the technology and what Sasol has called its “game changing” potential. In fact, most of the knowledge in circulation has come from those strongly opposed to “fracking”. Public relations companies have even been retained to blacken the picture and whip up emotions to a point approaching hysteria. They have plenty of material to work with. In the early days of fracking there were disasters, most of them the result of wild cat operations. But the technology has improved and in responsible hands it might even be acceptable in some circumstances. So it is easy to understand the fears in circulation. I grew up in the Karoo and I know that water gives land its value. Take away the water or contaminate it and one is left with worthless desert. In a drought, a good borehole is the only thing that stands between a farmer and financial ruin. It is an emotional
relationship. You can mess with his wife but don’t touch his borehole. The water of agricultural importance lies at depths of no more than a few hundred metres. Fracking, however, takes place something like 10 kilometres below the surface! That is five time deeper than our deepest gold mine. The temperature down there will be about 300°C and any water would become instant steam. If the hole is lined with steel there should be no contamination of agricultural water. But one can understand the fear. The biggest problems will be logistical ones. The equipment is massive and new roads will be required. What does one do with 10 kilometres of earth from borehole cores? The impact on the Karoo will be considerable. And where will the water needed for fracking come from? On the other hand, holes 10 kilometres deep will give us access to an inexhaustible supply of geothermal heat. And that can be turned into electricity. The US De-
partment of Energy says geothermal electricity is cheaper than coal or nuclear power and the price does not go up every year along with the cost of fuel and labour. Even if there is no gas we could win. So here’s the question: would you rather have Shell fracking in the Karoo or Eskom trying to run half a dozen atomic power stations? Nuclear power requires consistent good management for at least 50 years. There is no place for CEOs who trim the maintenance budgets to improve the bottom line and their bonuses. And there is no place for cadre deployment. Imagine a future Minister of Minerals, Energy and Nationalisation – someone like Julius Malema – having a hand in the appointment of nuclear mangers. His matric woodwork studies would be of little help. We may be able to survive an implosion in the Land Bank or a foul-up in the Karoo, but mismanagement of a Koeberg could be goodbye Cape Town.

Cry, beloved country WHILE most South Africans live in abject poverty, public officials such as Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Sicelo Shiceka seem to have been living like a millionaire – if the findings of a Sunday Times report are true. No expense was allegedly spared by Shiceka who – according to documents in the newspaper’s possession – has spent more than R2.5 million on first-class flights and accommodation since 2008. The article states that Shiceka spent R640 000 in one year for him and staff to stay at the One & Only, of which R280 000 was spent on Shiceka alone – by his own admission. Furthermore, it is reported that Shiceka embarked on a first-class flight for him and his personal assistant, rounded off with a stay in a five-star hotel to visit his girlfriend in prison in Switzerland, at a cost of R335 000. The visit to the prison, in a chauffeur-driven limo, cost R32 000. If true, Shiceka’s lifestyle smacks of “blatant abuse of taxpayers’ money”. His alleged wasteful expenditure has attracted widespread condemnation. Shiceka is not the only South African public official whose lavish lifestyle is under scrutiny. In a country that can ill afford to blow millions of rands, ANC youth league leader Julius Malema cost taxpayers more than R886 000 for police bodyguards from October 2009 to October 2010. Malema did not hold any public office to justify having two bodyguards. He was just an ordinary citizen, like the millions of other ordinary South Africans who fork out millions to keep themselves safe. But the buck doesn’t stop there. Flying in the face of a country lacking housing, health and basic services, is Defence Minister Lindiwe Sisulu’s decision to lease two new aircraft for transporting VIPs, at a staggering R800 million. When South Africans voted a democratic government into power 17 years ago, they voted for democracy, and a better life for all. A better life is being had, but only by a privileged minority.
MINISTER of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Sicelo Shiceka has come under fire for leading a lavish lifestyle at taxpayers’ expense, following
a Sunday Times report into the R2,5 million in state money he has allegedly spent on luxury hotels, limousines and overseas trips since 2008. In a country whose
public representatives are often caught out enjoying too much of the good life, his particular blend of lavishness has a bit of a Hollywood ring to it.
Your SMSes Free your home of toxic chemicals HAVE you ever thought about what the chemical flying-insect repellent you spray around your house is doing to your health? If they kill flies and mosquitoes they are harming your home environment as well, because you are inhaling these toxins. Make your own pure repellent which is safe for you, but will still get rid of those pesky insects and leave your home with a pleasant smell. You will need a quarter cup cider vinegar, a quarter cup rubbing alcohol (or unflavoured vodka), quarter cup distilled water, one teaspoon eucalyptus essential oil, one teaspoon pure citronella essential oil and two teaspoons peppermint essential oil. Place all the ingredients in a spray bottle and shake well before each use. Most health
shops will stock the essential oils. You can increase the quantities and keep a bottle in each room. Then consider all the other chemicals you use to keep your house clean that are all full of toxic substances. Our parents used only Sunlight and blue soap for everything. Clean your floors with spirit vinegar, water and a few drops of essential oils. Make your own washing powder with Borax, washing soda and Sunlight soap, which contains no added bulk and your whites will remain perfectly white, even when using cold water. Use spirit vinegar as a softening agent with your wash, and no, your wash does not smell of vinegar. JO MAXWELL Rosebank
Thank you for your loyalty

DEAR constituents. I am writing this letter to place on record my deep sense of gratitude for your loyal support over the years. It has been a busy, challenging five years, and, as a councillor, it was my mission to handle each obstacle and project with the utmost importance. I have not made the DA party candidate listing, but will continue to serve you, the community and the party, in my personal capacity. I thank you. COUNCILLOR BASIL LEE Ward 67
IT SEEMS that Colin Arendse has a problem with the City of Cape Town staff staying in Parkwood. He always has something to say or write about us. I also sometimes take a council vehicle home, but it is for operational standby duties. So Mr Arendse, rather write something about the drag racing problem or the illegal dumping than focus on where you see council vehicles parked at the various addresses in the Parkwood area.

Classic jam at the Baxter TWO of South Africa’s foremost classical guitarists, James Grace and Jonathan Crossley, are giving music lovers the duel of the decade: an innovative feast of modern and classic works by Bach, Tarrega, Albeniz, Myers, Abdullah Ibrahim and more. The concert will take place at the Baxter Concert Hall on Saturday, 16 April at 20:00. James Grace is one of one South Africa’s leading concert artists, appearing with symphony orchestras and in recital. He studied at the Royal College of Music, taught guitar in Qatar, and then returned to South Africa, where he was appointed head of Classical Guitar Studies at the University of Cape Town. Grace recently released his fifth solo album, “World Café”, and is in the final stages of setting up the Stringwise Young Artist’s Trust, which will assist young artists from across the country to produce their own al-
bums, as well as offer bursaries for overseas study. Jonathan Crossley, who began his career on the classical guitar, has shifted his focus more towards jazz performance, and appeared on stage with international and local stars. As a composer, he has found his outlet through The Jonathan Crossley Electric Band, with which he has appeared more than 45 times across Europe over the past three years, most notably at festivals in Spain, Slovakia, Turkey and ongoing tours in the Czech Republic. Crossley will be giving master classes for the public on Friday 15 April at 14:00 at UCT. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. The Concert Series recital starts at 20:00 and tickets can be booked in advance from Computicket at R125. Student and senior citizen discounts can be purchased at the door on the night of the concert.

Be wary of wounded Lions Stormers forced to re-group after losing first Super Rugby match against the Queensland Reds TASMIN CUPIDO
THE reaction of the DHL Stormers team, who suffered their first defeat of the season at the weekend, will dictate the team’s run for the rest of the Super Rugby competition. And head coach Allister Coetzee hopes his troops will take the loss in their stride, get up and learn from the mistakes made against the Australian outfit at Newlands on Saturday. “This is a long and tough competition, and it is crucial that the guys pitch with their A-game at each match,” Coetzee said. “We need to take this loss on the chin and stand up to produce better performances.” Unforced errors and ill-discipline marred the Stormers’ game plan in the 19-6 defeat to the men from Brisbane saw. The Reds, who dominated the lacklustre Cape side in all aspects of the game, were simply the better side on the day – Coetzee is the first to admit this. “We were not at our best; tactically the Reds were much better and their physical intensity was much higher – all credit to the Reds,” he said. A territorial game, keeping the Stormers in their own half for most of the match, saw the likes of Quade Cooper and Will Genia using tacti-
TELLING TALE: Unforced errors marred the game of the DHL Stormers in their 196 defeat to the Queensland Reds at Newlands on Saturday. Here eighthman Duane Vermeulen loses the ball in a tackle by Reds front rower, James Slipper. Photo: Peter Heeger/Gallo Images cal kicks to put pressure on the men in navy blue. Stints in the sin bin for Stormers eighthman, Duane
Vermeulen, and hooker, Tiaan Liebenberg, also did not help them. “We couldn’t gain or keep any
momentum and playing with 14 men for 20 minutes of the match did not aid us, either,” Coetzee says.
Despite the loss, they remain in the top position on the South African conference log and third on the combined log. Now the Stormers will divert their attention to the MTN Lions, who they take on at Coca-Cola Park in Johannesburg on Saturday afternoon. The last time the two sides met the Stormers came out 19-16 victors in their first match of the competition. John Mitchell’s side has had a spate of unfortunate, tightly-contested losses throughout the competition and will be looking to raise themselves from the bottom of the combined log. With nothing to lose, playing for pride in front of their home crowd, the men in red will put up a brave fight in the hope of turning the tables on the high-flying Stormers. Never afraid to run a risk, the men from Egoli will test the ever onsong Stormers defence, while a battle in the engine room can also be expected. Coetzee expects inside centre Jean de Villiers, who was a lastminute withdrawal from the Reds’ clash, to make his return against the Lions this Saturday.

THE Safa Cape Town is forging ahead with plans to stage an eight-nation international showpiece for under-20s – believing it will generate a huge financial spin-off for amateur soccer in 2012. So much so that the Safa CT application to run the event – in partnership with the City of Cape Town – has already been approved by the SA Football Association. Safa CT president, Norman Arendse, disclosed that the eight-nation championship will comprise the respective winners of the six Fifa Confederations Cup championships, the SA under-20s and an additional African team. “It is vital that we recognise under-20 soccer as a milestone for the development of our players. It is our responsibility as an amateur association to showcase this talent,” said Arendse. The blueprint for the 2012 championship comes on the back of the successful inaugural Cape Town International Challenge for under-20s that was hosted by the Safa CT and the city in 2010. Ghana, Brazil, South Africa and Nigeria vied for honours on the eve of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Ghana defeated Brazil 3-2 in the challenge final, watched by a 50 000-strong crowd at Cape Town Stadium – with the overall gate-takings from all matches allowing the city to contribute R600 000 to the coffers of the Safa CT. Arendse also disclosed that the Safa CT has secured increased financial support from other stakeholders to stage its senior and junior competitions this year. . Coca-Cola has agreed to increase its sponsorship for the Coke knockout Cup championships from R500 000 to R600 000. . Freeworld Coatings has upped its sponsorship for the club championships for under-11s and under-13s from R50 000 to R75 000. . Peace activist Mary Burton will patron the new Unity Cup for under-16 high school teams from various communities to the tune of R150 000 this year; and . Build It will sponsor junior tournaments in areas close to its branches across the Peninsula.

T age 30, Brent Carelse resists thoughts about hanging up his boots in the forseeable future – but rather focuses on what more he can aspire to achieve with Ajax Cape Town FC on the road ahead. What is uppermost in Carelse’s mind of course at the moment, is to help Ajax win the Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions title for the first time in its 11-year history. “I believe we can finish top if we stay focused and avoid complacency,” says Carelse, who has become no stranger on the champions’ rostrum. Carelse – eyeing a fourth winners’ medal – represented champions Mamelodi Sundowns (2006/2007), whereafter he shared in two of SuperSport United’s three consecutive league triumphs (2008/2009 and 2009/2010). Now Ajax could enhance their championship chances if they notch full points against Golden Arrows at Newlands Stadium on Friday (start 20:00). Carelse, buoyed by Ajax CEO George Comitis’ disclosure that he will sign the midfield maestro next season – after he came on loan from SuperSport in January – is expected to continue his rich vein of form for the Urban Warriors. “I was not only looking for a new challenge when I returned to Ajax from SuperSport, where I felt my game was stagnating because of my irregular appearances in matches. I also felt a need to settle in Cape Town with my family,” said Carelse. The presence of a versatile leftsided midfielder – who has thus far netted four goals for Ajax – has also brought out the best in the freescoring Thulani Serero and Khama Billiat. So often Carelse’s penchant for
engaging his pacey fellow players in quick one-two plays has allowed Ajax to prosper during their recent run of successes. The other motivation for Carelse is to be mentored by Dutch coach Foppe de Haan. “He is professional in his approach and a very honest coach. He constantly tells us that we are better players than what we think we are.” “De Haan’s one-on-one chats with each player really makes us believe in our abilities,” enthused Carelse. The Johannesburg-born Carelse is also thankful to his father Dougie Carelse – a former pro with Cape Town Spurs and Vereeniging Old Boys in the old Federation Professional League – for inspiring him to pursue a soccer career. “My dad insisted that I enrol at the School of Excellence in Johannesburg during my teens. “It was a tough experience but he encouraged me to persevere to ensure my future in the game. “He has always allowed me the freedom to do things my way on the field. But he will occasionally tell me what aspect of my game I need to improve on,” said Carelse junior, who first turned professional with Hellenic FC (then coached by Gavin Hunt) at age 17. But back to the showdown with Golden Arrows. Remember that it was Arrows that drew 2-2 with Ajax in 2007/2008 to deny Ajax the title on goal difference when the clubs tied on points. First choice custodian, Hans Vonk, is also ruled out by suspension and will be replaced by Andre Petim on Friday night. Good news for Ajax though, is that Clayton Daniels returns from suspension and that Saamehg Doutie is fit to play. . Tickets are on sale at Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers branches. No tickets will be on sale at the stadium.
